Child Loses an Eye

Home/Drone News/Child Loses an Eye

An 18-month-old boy has lost an eye after being hit by a drone flown by a family friend.

Oscar Webb’s eye was sliced in half by a propeller after the operator, Simon Evans, lost control of the drone.

The toddler, from Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire, will need several operations before he can have a prosthetic eye fitted.

It was the first drone injury Oscar’s surgeon had seen, but she said it was “inevitable” there would be many more.
